Glory to Jesus Christ!

My Name is Tamás Véghseő. I’m Greek-catholic Priest of the Eparchy of Hajdúdorog (Hungary), Church historian and Rector of the St Athanasis Greek-Catholic Theological Institute in Nyíregyháza.

I'm working on a historical catalog of greek-catholic priests (with photos if available), ordained between 1850 and 1950 and served in the Eparchy of Hajdúdorog and in the Exarchate of Miskolc. Some of them have served in the United States. I miss some data of these priests and especially missing their photos.

Please see our site, The Carpathian Connection, www.tccweb.org [tccweb.org] we have extensive information on many of the early Greek Catholic priests in America, we also have an entire article on Father Basil Volosin http://www.tccweb.org/ourchurches.htm#Pioneer_Greek_Catholic_Priestly_Families

Dear JEK,
thank you very much for the Information. Formerly I have visited the outstandig Homepage The Carpathian Connection, but only now I found the information about Basil Volosin. I have additional data to Father Volosin regarding his period in Hungary (1863-1895 and 1910-1920).
I have found his family members in Hungary (the Family Nagylucskay), but there is no picture about him. Did you see any Photo of Basil Volosin?

Dear Father:

Thank you for your kind reply and very gracious compliments. Please feel free if you wish to send any information you would like posted (with full credit of course) to editors@tccweb.org and unfortunately, to the best of my knowledge, I have no photo of Father Volosin.
